Unhappy Gold Pack install issue

Sooo, I just bought EAW Gold Pack in Best Buy, but all my excitment is gone for the moment.

I just can't install this game. I insert the Dvd, the installation menu pops. I can access some of the bonus stuff on the disc. But I can't install the game. I doesn't matter which option I choose; EAW alone or the EAW GP, an error pops up.

"Please insert the EAW Gold Pack DVD to continue"

I can´t understand what's the problem here, please help me.

Which operating system are you running? If its Vista, turn off the UAC - User Account control. Its the pointless nanny on Vista.

Otherwise, ensure that your dvd rom is at least 8x speed and that the drivers are up to date

Hahahahahaha

Wow, I don't know why I never thought of searching through the folders and open the install exes manually.

I searched on the EAWX folder, opened the Forces of Corruption install exe. For a strange reason I couldn't open de EAW one.

Luckily it opened both install menus, so I finally got to install both games.

Case Closed

still doesn't work for me

The installation worked well. But then I tried to start the game.
I still get the same error message: "Please insert the EAW Gold Pack DVD to continue".
When I go to C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption.
And click on swfoc.exe I get a start up screen. And then it disappears again.
I do have a 16x DVD drive.
Could someone help me?
